Trip Highlights

•   Contrast the sophisticated Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires with the Patagonian outpost of Ushuaia - two totally different locations

•   On-board lectures by polar experts provide great insight into the unique history, geology and wildlife of the region

•   Few people ever get the opportunity to set foot on the Great White Continent, but you'll be one of them

•   A diversity of possible landing sites and activities allows you to see the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula from multiple perspectives

•   Optional activities such as sea kayaking or polar ice camping on selected voyages can take your adventure to the next level. Book early, as these sell out fast

Where you'll be staying

Ocean Endeavour

The largest in our fleet, the Ocean Endeavour offers an unmatched sense of space.  She has plenty of outdoor space on the expansive decks to watch the magnificent scenery go by.  Spacious lounge and bar areas for relaxing with a drink or chatting to fellow travellers.  This ship allows you to be part of it all, or to enjoy Antarctica in quiet solitude.  There are a variety of cabins to choose from offering something for those on a budget, a great value option for solo travellers, and for those who like the finer things; there is something for everyone.

Endeavour is also the only polar expedition ship in Antarctica focused on health and wellness, and offers a contemporary approach to cuisine and newly-designed health and fitness features. Facilities include a spa serviced by organic spa provider VOYA, His & Hers saunas, a salt water pool, a gym, and a juice and smoothie bar. Complimentary activities include yoga and stretching classes, an exclusive Polar Photography program, the Scientists in Residence program, and more adventure activities than any other vessel.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Buenos Aires, where your Antarctic adventure begins. Arrive into the city at any time today, and independently transfer to the group hotel (accommodation is included for the night). After checking in, meet your fellow travellers and be briefed by the expedition team about the journey ahead. If you arrive early into Buenos Aires, there’s plenty to see and do. Perhaps explore the neighbourhood of La Boca, pay your respects to Eva Peron at the famous Recoleta Cemetery or search through the antique markets of San Telmo.
